Hello from my new blog spot!


I did sort of expect to give a bit more warning than this before changing my blog's URL, but it seemed like a good time to make the change. My flash fiction from Nick Wilford's Overcoming Adversity blog hop will be included in the anthology he's creating, so I figured I should give him a new blog URL instead of one I was planning on changing soon anyway. My old blog address is still there, but from now on I'll be posting here.

I wasn't really sure what I wanted to change to, but this URL features my initials (though my actual name is Patricia, not Trisha), and also the name of my blog. I have a fondness for my initials mostly because my dad makes use of them a fair bit. As a photographer, he's got folders full of slides of me throughout my life, and each of these folders are labelled simply "TWF". He's also sent me postcards from overseas addressed simply to "TWF". My brother is "JWF" (we each have our mum's surname as our middle name), and he gets labelled as such too. Even our email names display as TWF and JWF.

So there you go. That's the reasoning. Now I just hope you can all find me. :)

I have noticed some broken things and have fixed them as I've stumbled across them (blog rolls had to be done from scratch, and one page wasn't working), so if you notice anything else broken, please let me know! Hopefully this will be the last change in...a long time. Maybe ever. ;)

  1. Looks good to me! You're in my blog roll and everything as normal. I changed URL once in my early days, and was rather scared as I read I would lose my followers, but they were still there (all 7 of them, lol.)

    Congrats on the move and thanks again for your great story! :)

  2. Your blogger profile links to your google plus page which is how I found you so I think you're good! I let you know if anything doesn't work :)

  3. So has anybody commented that your initials are a reordering of WTF? erm... (that's a bonus in my opinion). Congrats on being in the anthology! And good luck in your new home!

  5. Redoing it all from scratch - no fun! But it looks great.

  6. I got here through Google+ like I usually do, so it didn't make a difference that it's a new URL. I like the explanation for why your initials are extra special to you and you included them in the URL :-)

  9. Found you! I love the background image for your site--they make me think of feathers in a kaleidoscope.

  10. Seems like the new URL's a better fit for this blog. I liked "thefarseas" but I wasn't sure how it related to your blog. (Though possibly you'd explained that in an older blog post and I was too lazy to look it up?) (The lazy bit isn't possible, it just is.) :-)

    Was a lot of work involved in making the URL transition?

  11. Welcome to the new spot. I'm afraid to change mine (not that I need to right now), in case my blog explodes. Knowing my luck, that's exactly what would happen.

  12. Thank you for visiting my blog, Trisha. As this is the first thing I’ve read of yours I still have to find out about your blog activities.

    See you soon.

  18. I love that google reader automatically followed you so I didn't lose you. Wonder how it knows to do that?

  19. I recently redesigned and retitled my blog and have been wondering if changing the url would mess things up too much. Thanks for being an inadvertent guinea pig for me. ;)
